... of Lexapro. The first two weeks were horrible with side effects extreme dizziness and nausea and light headed. On the 3rd week I started feeling significantly great again not completely I still had moments of anxiety but not as bad as they were before. This is the fourth week and I’m feeling even better but my psychiatrist increased my dose to 10 mg for a more aggressive approach to make me feel 100% normal. He said I can stick to 5mg to see if it makes me feel even better for a couple more weeks to see if it gets even better or I can go to 10 . I decided to go to 10 but now I’m having second thoughts . I don’t want to experience more side effects again like when I first started due to the 5mg increase any suggestions?
